5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 07, 2006
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship was super clean, our stateroom was cleaned and 'fluffed' at least twice daily. It was easy to reserve and purchase an excursion. The staff was always courteous and helpful. The entertainment was first class and the costumes were outstanding. I really liked the concept of 'sign and sail' cards as it made all purchases super simple.

The shops downtown were pretty much the same as the ones at the port. The prices were so high for silver! Taxi's were very available there and back.

We went on the Mayan Reality Tour and boy was it a reality shock! It's good to see how other cultures/countries really live as opposed to the riches we take for granted in the USA. I came away with a greater appreciation for what I have.

Pros: The options to participate in activities or just relax.

Cons: Late evening seating but it was changed by Ante to earlier at our request.
